Some nice stuff. I like the head hurt guy with the soldiers, and the guy with smoke behind him looking confused. Like the other anon said, it's good you're getting into the action. Shots of people holding signs aren't as strong, but I feel for those ones you need to catch people at the right moment, like when they're yelling or something.

Pretty nice. House at farm looking through window is choice. Car poking out of the bush is sick.

Macro photography is onions af. But on the other hand your windmill is dark and moody, great contrast, glad you went black and white. Perfect piece to do so.
>>3474467 #
I hate portraits and anyone who marches in a rally for anything. Your pictures seem fine but that kind of photography is lame and every picture is the same shit over and over sorry.

Oh hey buddy good stuff but you need to post more. Not every shot has to be a winner. If you post a few stinkers it makes your good pics look even better.

You seem to be setting a melancholic mood and having a tone is cool but your pictures are boring. Find some better light. Try shooting the same pictures but at different times.

Mine is a variation between cars, nature and architecture. I travel the US from time to time so I have a lot of pictures of major cities. Ideas on consistent content are welcome, though so are any ideas really. I don't mind being generic but I want to be better than boring.

Nillux here to give my feedback. Accidentally passed out whoops.

>>3474399
Really good stuff! Not really a fan of macro/wildlife but you do it well.

>>3474467
Your shots are good, im just not a super huge fan of the content though. Wherever you are you got some happy looking protesters though.

>>3474520
I remember your statue shot from the rpt thread. I really like your eye for perspective a lot. I like your street work mostly (the roof shot, the stuff in shibuya, etc). Following.

>>3474640
That making your pics smaller thing is such a dumb fad. All it does is make your images look like shit because its hard to see. On top of that it looks like you arent saving your images properly for insta so the compression is fucking them further.

>>3474793
Any shots in particular? There were a couple that I want to get in different weather/lighting but usually I wont upload if I think Im gonna be going back to it later on.

What are y’all gunna do if they remove likes? They are implementing it in Canada as a test run.

It’d be better for mental health but I see contrarian faggots scared their only source of validation would be taken

>>
>>3474953
Canada guy here. It's been likeless for about a week or so. Hasn't really bothered me. It's probably for the better. Likes do give some validation, but maybe it will get me posting more just because people won't be able to see the "duds".

I wonder if it will put more emphasis on follower count or something.

I got myself a full-time job a few months ago and now I have lots of money for gear but no time to use any of it. Going to upload more even if it's garbage.

Film? I like a lot of it. Really simple compositions but pleasing to look at.

You really like clouds eh?

>>3474527
Noice muted colours, I think you could do with getting closer to some of your subjects though.

I like what you do. I think the actual difficulty of this kind of photography is not to end up just taking photos of weird people doing stuff. I love No chance 10, 21 and 24. Some of the portraits are also very interesting.

>>3474640
Super interesting. I'm not sure if i will critic the format, but I do see that some of the photos seem to be in low quality for some reason. It's very noticeable in the one of the lighthouse. I'm into it anyway, it's super good.

>>3475006
I don't have a lot to comments but I really like the last three photos. I want to see more.

I'm trying but it's more difficult than you'd think. I like a wide array of things so it just makes it all a mess in the end.
>>
>>3475363
Then make a "personal" one and a portfolio one. Whatever goes into the personal, only the absolute best goes into the port one.
>>
>>3475367
I guess I might do that. The requires an entirely different email address too doesn't it? I recall you can manage two accounts but I don't know if I need another email.

>>3475377
Nope. Might have to designate one as a "business" but that's whatever.

>>3475381
Oh nice. Well I'll go setup a second one then, thanks fort he help anon.
>>
>>3475389
np.

One thing though, swapping between multiple accounts can get annoying. You have to tap on your icon in the lower right, then in the upper left, you tap on your screen name, then you can choose between the active account.
>>
>>3475390
Gotta do what I gotta do. It pisses me off that you can't upload from a browser though, most of my pictures are copied to my computer and then moved over to my phone so I can post them.
>>
>>3475394
If it really bothers you, download an android emulator, then install instagram on that.
>>
>>3475407
not other anon but is bluestacks still relevant in 2019?
>>
>>3475409
No clue, I just know the way to upload from a computer is by installing an emulator.
>>
instagram.com/kaunas.jpg

Not much yet but some film is being developed right now
>>
>>3475394
You can though. If you inspect element/F12 on the IG website on chrome there’s a button that lets you emulate the mobile version, and you can upload from there.

Any other photogs here really not give a shit about posting to IG? Like I know I should care because it would help my business, but then again, social media can suck a fat one even if IG is one of the better platforms.

Promising stuff. Your attention to detail is out of this world. Common interests, too. Followed. You may find it challenging and rewarding to start considering the organism as part of its biology and trying to capture specific pieces of that.

>>3474467
I have a lot of friends who do social stuff. Cool portraits. I'm terrible at street so I can't give much in the line of constructive feedback.

>>3474640
Good job at slice of life shit. I'm always envious of you folks who know what to photograph to make me feel like I'm part of your life. It's very personal and touching. Just keep doing what you do.

>>3474695
Flame on. Neat subjects. Also very slice of lifey.

>>3475106
Great eye for pleasing color palettes. Your compositions do not appeal to me, but your colors make me feel.

>>3474943
I feel like you've got something good hidden in your feed, like there's a really neat photographer who is learning, but not letting enough of their own light shine through. I don't know if you spend a lot of time emulating others, but if you do, I suggest letting that down a little bit and marie kondo your shooting.

Me: mix of film and digital, legacy glass appreciation, point and shoots, nature and stuff. Lately I've been on a heck of a wildflower trip because we're just hitting the tail end of it here in the WSW.

Hello, I'm a newbie photographer, new to this site, I hope it all goes right. Get my feedback as a personal point of view of what I think it's good. So not as a professional criticism but just as a fan of photography, that doesn't know much.

The amazing picture I love the composition and the colours, they are so in harmony with everything I'm a fan of that kind of picture I would really love to takes pictures like this Macro is amazing.
>>3474399
Great shots I love the way you are using the aperture to perfectly frame the subject and blur the background and letting those background still be colourful

You'll be waiting a long time. Whenever anybody says "I'll post critiques later" in these threads they never actually do it. They want the self-promotion and free critiques for themselves without any of the work.

>>3477347

putting a frame around something makes it seem more important and worth looking at.

Been a while since I commented in one of these threads. Shooting mostly woodland/city scenes now-
https://www.instagram.com/seanbluestone/

>>3474826
Seems to be a personal profile which is fine but it's kind of pointless putting it in a thread like this
>>3474971
Already following you so I dig it. High contrast is neat but the more recent the darker your stuff is getting to the point that it's probably too dark for instagram. Also geez a shout next time you're about Edinburgh, could grab a pint and be autistic with cameras together
>>3475006
Too early to offer anything constructive other than I'm not immediately sure what I'm looking at in a lot of them, or why. I'd suggest shooting for a bit longer before creating an instagram as there's not much interest here
>>3475066
Nice to see some proper use of wide lens and format- digging those tall verticals in particular.
Your verticals and those dramatic night skies are the kind of stuff that does really well on Insta by the by, might be worth focusing on a bit more
>>3475162
Fun to look through, nice variety of both content and style/processing. Your content would fare a lot better on Flickr or 500px but I dig it regardless, followed.
>>3475233
Why is everyone on /p/ using white borders on IG?
Seems like personal photography which is cool, doesn't appeal much to me as you're mostly just shooting stuff that's interesting to you and I'd say some of them seem very hastily set up/snapped. If it's a personal page/project then this doesn't matter and ignore me.
>>3475697
I can see influences from other street photographers which is cool, definitely headed in the right direction and one or two good hits in there. Very cool
>>3476521
Comfy and consistent. I like the stuff where you're playing with post-processing. I think the old foreground-interest meme would help you in a lot of these
>>3476820
It's clear you're new cause you're shooting everything and trying to find what you like. Keep shooting, nothing terrible in here

If I just joined Instagram, I'd be impressed, in fact when I had like a year ago yours was one of the first accounts I'd seen and I was like wow, this is really good, but after a year I can't say I feel the same way, I live in Cape Town South Africa, and there's so much accounts from local photographers with these clear, colorful, well composed photos and they mean Fuckall to me, in fact on a bad day I could actually despise an account like that. I'm sure you're a good person but there's little I find meaningful in your pictures, maybe it isn't my taste but all the colors and clarity is just superfluous, it reminds of stock photography, if that's what your'e going for well done. There is something to your nature shots, some of them, more the way you capture light. If you want advice, figure out a way to bring out the light in a more evocative way as I think its your strong suit. Maybe you're comfortable where you are and if so that's great and I envy you.

>>3478156
Cool landscapes, I bet they look even better on anything bigger than a mobile phone screen. The better ones are the landscapes that fit your aspect ratio IMO and the more abstracty ones . hmm I'd like to get more of a sense of you in your photo's though, like tell me a story through a photo, maybe the aspect ratio gives me a clinical impression despite it being nature shots. I guess you're very much into your technical composition?

>>3476820
Well yeah, I can tell you're new to photography. Your photos are IN focus, so good job. Look as long as your'e willing to learn and take risks, find your style give thought to what you want to do and don't be afraid to chuck away photo's you don't feel are right, then you'll be ok. Hope this makes sense...Good luck.


As for me, I was planning on posting my account, but in writing my critiques I felt I dont want to any longer. I'm not a photographer. So take my comments as you will.

I like the simplicity and the colors.
>>3474527
I like this one a lot in general. Just the mood all your pictures give, huge fan.
>>3474640
Amazing composition and use of color. Again, the pictures all have emotion which I really like.
>>3474943
I'll parrot what the others have said: your photography is high quality, it follows all the rules and plays really well by the book, but because of that there isn't too much "personal style" in a lot of them. You've mastered taking good photos, now I think you should really start to dive into what your own personal art/style/aesthetic is, and start going with that.
>>3475106
Still looking good my man
>>3476093
Also still looking good, love your stuff
>>3476239
I like your daytime photography a lot more than your night work, the day work looks a lot more crisp and has more emotion to it. The night work looks a little less refined (which is understandable because good night photography is incredibly difficult)
>>3476329
Big fan of the nature and outdoors stuff
>>3476521
I really love the consistency and theme here, great use of low contrast and high brightness, sometimes I feel like that's something that can be overdone, but you seemed to hit the right spot.
>>3476820
In my opinion a lot of your photos are a little oversaturated. If you use lightroom, often a general rule of thumb is to slide to -10 on your saturation bar as a pretty standard place to start. Your pictures aren't bad, you clearly have a nice camera and know how to use it, but like I told someone earlier, the next step is developing a sense of style so that your pictures have "feeling" to them. A lot of beginners take pictures that pretty much look like generic stock photos, which is to say they are high quality photos, but lack a certain level or artistic style or creativity to them. That usually comes with time and practice though, so stay with it and you'll be alright

Thanks for the support

>>3478599
The biggest advice I would give you is that since phones are pretty shit quality (in terms of raw image quality) you need to dedicate entirely to framing, composition, and just interesting subjects/scenes/light/etc.

I really like the moss picture.
>>
>>3479888
Thanks man that's what I was feeling. the biggest problem I'm having is distance. If anything is further than a few feet away you need to start cropping like mad and you start to see the weakness of the lense.

Yeah unfortunately phone cameras just weren't meant for that, so that's going to be an issue you run into. I'd honestly recommend saving your money and getting a DSLR, some of the entry levels are pretty good. I cut my teeth on a Nikon D5600 that came with 2 lenses. Really something to consider if you consider this to be a lasting hobby.

Thanks, dude. Pleasure seeing you around still too. Always enjoy your shots of people. You capture personality really well; I've always thought of that as more of a "when" than a "what" to shoot deal.
>>
>>3480297
>Always enjoy your shots of people

Thanks man, I really love taking portraits. And yeah what I've noticed is that people (myself included) tend to be really bad at posing for pictures. You can just tell it looks staged/awkward, and so most of my best shots are as they are "getting ready for the pose" or talking to other people.

Hit me up with a DM, I have a separate account that is pretty much all portraits.

A lot of varied stuff on your profile which I really like. Well done.

>>3474527
Half of this shit I would have never thought to take a photo of, it blows my mind when people like you take photos of such generic things but still make them work so well. Hope you had fun on that trip to Alberta.

>>3474575
I love your B&W photos, the rest of it is kind hit or miss for me. Also, get rid of that fucking photo you took from the plane window, I despise those.

>>3474898
Good composition and colours. If I were you, I'd try experimenting with those night shots. Lower the exposure and go for something a bit darker/moodier. Just a suggestion.

>>3475066
I really like a lot of these. Especially that shot looking down the road with the parked cars and that one of the subway. Definitely sets a mood.

Mainly portraits, fashion, street style. I really need to improve my game.

>>3483537
Your mom is right.
Good eye for composition. There's one or another photo I'd say it isn't in your regular standard ("Getting My Bearings", for instance, which was quite popular among your followers, so I may be wrong), but overall you have a very solid work.

>>3483088
Where's the link, man?
It's kinda hard for me to understand your work with memes and snapshots of your dog in your gallery. I'd suggest you create another account just for your serious work. You seem to be exploring photography. Don't stop -- just pay close attention to more seasoned photographers and learn from them (>>3483537 is a good example).

>>3483020
Great work. Avoid common themes (the hand on the ground, the skull) -- you don't need them.

>>3480215
You need to shoot more. I think you have a good eye for photography, but sometimes you rely on lesser work for the lack of a more consistent production. Nice gallery, anyway.

>>3478584
I like it, with very few exceptions (the "Hunter" gallery and the mug shot, for instance).
As >>3480297 said, I think you know how to capture personality, btu I also like your non-portrait work. Keep shooting valiantly. It's working for you.

Quick note for all of you that I quoted: you are all better than me. I know this. Just keep that in mind while reading my advices.

You really don't need to. Yeah it looks "aesthetic" but ultimately it's more authentic if you just post what you shoot. Granted, if you shoot a certain way and your post processing method is pretty consistent, you may inadvertently end up with a common "theme" that looks more natural and less tryhard.

Another thing you can do (and I don't know if this is taboo on /p/ but fuck it) is put white borders on all your stuff. Guarantees that the full shot is included in the post, and makes the overall "look" of your feed a little easier on the eyes.

I'm glad you guys really like my portraits. I try really hard to get a "natural and candid" look at people when I take their picture.

As for my processing I'm glad you like that too, I used to be pretty awful at it (over cooked the tone curve and split tones constantly, had no appreciation for subtle adjustments), so I'm glad that I'm getting better at that.

Maybe try to do something different to push you out of your comfort zone? These are all pretty great, but if you want to up your game then maybe switch something up. Color? Different subjects? Seems like all of your photos are of attractive people trying to look cool and aloof, which works, but maybe do something else and see how it goes?

I like your shots but I have a hard time really liking non-square crop images on instagram, I feel like the app just does a shitty job with them.

Not really sure what you meant but if you need hashtags, what I do is I go up to the searchbox and start typing a keyword then I'll scroll down the list and open each page or hashtag and see what it's like

My ig going to be like 99% cosplay but I also do other stuff (nightlife and non-cosplay portraits, used to do landscapes but that went away, got no time).

Aside from a couple of local convention shots which are just "okay", I'm going to be posting a a few special shots from an invite-only event here in Italy, so if anyone cares for cosplay here, it might be interesting. (last shot I posted is the first one from that event)

Very "cinematographic"! Seems like I'm watching stills from a northern psychological horror movie.

>>3489759
Don't put your photos under many multi picture collections, it's hard to see those on instagram. Slim it down to just the 1 shot your like and go for that.

Try to go for straight perspective (straight vertical lines I mean) on your buildings shots.

You have many multi picture collections that would become a nice 3-picture row or 6-picture square. Post them once a day, keeping a theme going, and your ig will look much more cohesive.

>>3488358
those inverted forest shots give me the chills, nice
Your concert shots are a bit meh, your bw work is on another level compared to your colour shots!

Sorry, Im only commenting on who I follow. I think its better than telling people I dont like their work.

>Snapshits, blogish life pics, travel, occasional actual attempts at photography

>>3474637
Followed, very cool stuff. IMO I think your cropping takes away from the pictures a bit, some of them look a little fuzzy (might just be me) but i would love to see some of these in their original ratio. (I see people have mentioned this and youve taken note so thats cool)
>>3475233
I love this. Youve got great colors man, Keep it up, Id hate to see this account go dead
>>3488543
Followed bc of your Vampire Weekend lyric. Your first 6 pics are really interesting since they are entirely different places on the planet, id like to see where else you go/have been so keep posting
>>3488902
Weird and interesting, I like stream of consciousness style posting like this, especially out of context videos.
>>3489039
Im not usually a street photo person but I like your colors. These are really beautiful. That pink sweater one is fantastic, Id like to see more stuff like that than angular buildings.
>>
>>3474399
is it possible to get followers if you have no friends?
like by taking cool pictures, tagging locations and using hashtags?

are any of you worried about someone google searching your instagram account and find it being posted on 4chan?
>>
>>3491024
Yes, I dont think you really need irl friends to make it on IG or any social media. It would be a good idea to get into some sort of group though, like /p/ for example and just post your stuff and develop. Hashtagging brings a lot of traffic too.

Also no, I dont really view 4chan's niche boards like /p/ the same way I view /b/ or the other infamously "villainous" boards, its an entirely different demographic. Its like being ashamed for posting on reddit because they have porn or cringe subs.
also 4chan auto deletes so the odds of someone seeing your non-offensive post on here would are slim to nil
>>
>>3491024
>is it possible to get followers if you have no friends?
Yes. Instagram is very follow-happy, unlike twitter or facebook. It's very easy to build a follower base from strangers.
>>
>>3491024
just download a bot or an app that lets you auto follow a lot of people, also drop likes left right center. For the first 100-200 followers you'll mostly get bots in and those will unfollow you like a day after, unfollow them too. try to keep your F/F ratio around 1:1.
>>
how do you find people to shoot portraits of you?
>>
>>3491387
You pay them
>>
>>3491024

I have only like 5irl friends that follow me and 1,1k followers.
>>
>>3491607
how did you gain that much followers? and what's your f/f ratio?

obviously has no social clout

Dont know famalam, that's just what my gf told me. Eventho see has 10k+ followers and only follows 300+.
>>
>>3491806
I follow like 260 people, and I follow maybe 5 that don't follow me back. Well just post a lot and target a specific group. Like if you post nature, don't follow social i fluencers. Also try to keep it themed, people really like that and ofc it's important for you to like your stuff as well. If you really want followers, go to other people's profiles and like 10ish posts and target those that follow many but don't have more followers than they follow. That way you can find nice accounts and be discovered.

do you follow them? or just like the posts?
>>
Has anyone here paid for instagram promotion? Not like from those seedy third party sites, but from instagram itself? How much money did you spend? What kind of results did you get?
>>
>>3492156
I just liked their posts, but that was back when I had less followers. For some reason the more followers you have, the more you get. I got 40ish followers in the past 3 days.
>>
>>3492174
If you swap to bussiness account instagram will send you free promo. I got $20 but I still didn't use it.
>>
>>3492174
i paid for two promotions, this one and one for 20€. The 20€ one reached only 6k people though
>>
>>3492253
>25 euros for 33 follows
That seems pretty bad. I did a facebook page promotion before and got 60 likes for $8. I tried it with instagram hoping to get similar results, but I ended up with no new followers, but the photo I promoted did get around 80ish likes. So that's kinda disappointing. I think I would have gotten similar results just running a liker bot.
>>
>>3492253
Did you ever get the free promo? Do you know if they actually charge anything or no, since one of my bank accs is empty and the transaction kept being rejected?
>>
>>3492256
yeah it really is bad, but its only 25€

>>3492261
no i didn't get a free promo
>>
>get followed by someone so I follow them back
>next day, they have unfollowed me

why do people do this christ
>>
>>3492272
Put on your big boy pants and unfollow them back.
>>
>>3492273
already did. even went a step further and unliked their shit but it's a hassle having to check everytime
>>
>>3492272
They're not physically following you then unfollowing you. They have their account automated so it's just a bot targeting accounts and trying to get bigger numbers. There's quite a few faggots on /p/ who automate their instas though they never admit to it due to their faggotry.
>>
>>3492310
why not just keep a 1:1 f/f ratio though?

They do. They just explode up to thousands followed for a few hours then quickly unfollow them by the next day. See Chosis' statistics for this kind follow-unfollow behaviour from using automated account and bots.

I'm sure it works to gather large amount of follows but it's questionable how many quality followers you get. I'm sure now I mention this he'll come out of the woodwork pretending to be an anon desperately defending this kind of practice.

This is why I have a follow tracker. Often times when I post something and have some zine/photography hashtags, I'll get a sudden wave of new followers. Usually the first warning signs are
>they have thousands of followers but are only following a few people
>we have no mutual followers
>their stuff is really generic

Sometimes if it's content I actually like, I will follow back, but usually those warning signs just tell me "don't follow back, they'll unfollow you in a few days anyway". Like I said, when I see my follower count drop, I check the tracker. I tend to unfollow anyone who unfollows me, purely out of principle. My "not following you back" list is just a handful of zines that I try to get featured on, and a few professional photographers.
>>
>>3492337
I can relate to this. I just follow pages that feature and a few accounts that I really like. I do have a 'spam' account as well where I follow everyone else I'd like to see.

How do you deal with instagram being totally fucked up and not letting people see your posts tho? I have 1.1k followers and sometimes around 200likes only and most are from my followers, while hashtags don't seem to work always. I had a 19k reach on one post then the next post barely got to 2k, and it's making me so pissed off.
>>
What is it with bots watching stories lately, i got 217 views on my last story and i think more than half of them is by automated accounts
>>
>>3492338
You might be getting shadowbanned for using banned hashtags. And the list of banned hashtags are kinda ridiculous. You can also get shawbanned for using the same hashtag over and over again because their algorithm considers it spam. So if you’re a Nikonfag and tag every single one of your photos #nikon Instagram will slap a shadowban on you and prevent your posts from showing up to nonfollowers searching hashtags.

I write the melodies with love from the soul on the guitar (sometimes piano) and turn them into hard hitting psychedelic grooves with smooth breaks and tough drops.

I love you all and always follow back! Engage me and I will respond! <3

Do you guys bother responding to comments if it's just an endless repeat of "wow great shot m8" 15 or 20 times?
Not from bots but from real people with their own way of saying "gr8 shot m8"
>>
>>3493219
No. I assume everyone is a bot unless they say something specific enough about the photo to make me think they’re not a bot.
>>
>>3493219
It depends.If its a friend Ill say thank you or whatever, but usually I just like the comment and thats it really, unless its from someone I dont like otherwise I dont do anything
>>
>>3493176
>this modern, populated, fun photo-sharing platform is vapid trash because I don't I understand how to engage properly or find people with accounts that interest me

IG has a ton of basic garbage on it, but it also has lots of highly-talented, interesting, and cool people on it. Make some friends and you might enjoy it more.

This. You could say the same about tumblr when it was in its hay-day.

>it's just a bunch of SJW bullshit and cringey fandoms

Yeah if you actively go looking for that kind of stuff. There was a whole arts/aesthetics side that was pretty incredible for inspo. /fa/ even used to have daily tumblr threads.

My entire instagram feed (at least the art one that I post here) is just other photographers and artists, and so it's all really neat work. Best thing about instagram is that you literally only see what you follow.
